I'm building new website for mattblick.com and Beatles Songwriting Academy.
I’m training for a couple of ultra marathons.
I’m using the ‘Kon Mari’ method to streamline my collection of sheet music..
I’m teaching guitar, rock band and mentoring singer/songwriters in the Nottinghamshire area.
I’m excited about the new album from Liz Frencham which features a song we wrote together.
And some things I’m not doing.
I’m on a break from writing and recording new music, recharging my batteries by learning any covers that take my fancy.
I’m also currently taking a break from blogging my way through the entire Beatles catalogue at Beatles Songwriting Academy.
I’ve handed over leadership of the monthly ‘bring and share’ First Tuesday Songwriters Group to Daudi Matsiko.
In 2019 I quit Facebook and did a year long ‘fast’ from new media (books, films, TV shows, albums and podcasts) to focus on all the cool stuff I already had. It was fun!
